What do you mean by pending exactly? Slanted maybe?

Hmm. Are you sure that the oblique fonts are not used instead of italic?

Anyway, I'd like to see a comparison of screenshots with and without the oblique fonts present before making a final decision on removing the oblique fonts.

in the specific case of freesans fonts, oblique is slanted, while italic is slanted and cursive; with other fonts, i noticed the oblique being more slanted than italic, while not cursive. We should evaluate how much space it's possible saving up if italic ttf files are removed, and also if it makes sense italic-izing non-latin alphabets. I really would like to see the miniiso becoming smaller that 10 megs and the g-i being able to run with 64 megs of ram only.
